Hi there to everyone, it's been a while. Just wandering does anyone have problems with standing or walking when it affects the lower back. I find that I can't stand in a queue for more than five minutes without my back getting realy achy or I find that when I walk for a while I get the same but only it affects the top of my thighs & hips too.
Sometimes (quite alot lately) I get a feeling that I have just been rolled over by a steam engin and my back was its target. I find it hard to get up from my seat and often need help to get out of it. (yet another big joke in our house).
I don't think it is my bed or mattress as I have changed both several times in the past 2/3 years to see if it would make a difference but it hasn't. I see my new nero on the 17th so will mention it to him but would really be greatfull for any input from someone.. Thanks heeps Donnalynne XXXOOO
I've had EXACTLY the same trouble for several years. Though I was too young to feel that old, so have mostly "suffered in silence". But this past week I had to stand in a line for 3 hours. Ended up having to use my new fold-up cane to get through the rest of the day. Will be talking to my neuro about it, too next visit.
Hi. I have the same problem. My back is constantly aching. It started about three years ago. I told my former neuro about it, but he just ignored it, and told me that I was eligible to be in a study for MS. A lot of help he was. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that i have this problem too. I hope you feel better.
I have this problem but not when I am walking. I have it when I sit for awhile and try to get up and also when I sleep, I wake up with my back aching. When I try to get up from sitting, I feel like an old woman and I am only 36 years old. Let us know what your neurologist says about it.
yes i have had that same problem for a few yrs now,,, i was using bengay patches,, and then started using flexall cream and rubbing it in,, my neuro gave me lidocaine patches,, which were normally for ppl who had shingles,,, but it also helps with MS pain,,, i also put ice on those places for about 15 minutes every few hours and that helps alot too when i am home and busy doing stuff.
I have had MS for 20 years. My first symptom was the back pain and I went through all the tests for back problems. They found nothing wrong with my back. Ten years ago I got the dx of Ms. When I have my good days, my back doesn't hurt. I started taking Goji juice about 2 wks ago and my back has been great. No heaviness no pain. I don't know if perhaps I just am having good days. Time will tell. I hope I have found my miracle.
